FAQ About the ACSM

What is an Advanced Certified Scrum Master?

The Advanced Certified Scrum Master (A-CSM) is a Scrum Alliance certification level that requires advanced expertise in agile project management practices and the Scrum Master role. The certification builds on the basic Certified Scrum Master (CSM) and is designed for experienced Scrum Masters who want to deepen their knowledge and expand their skills.

The A-CSM is certified by Scrum Alliance, an internationally recognized organization specializing in the support and promotion of agile methodologies. It provides formal recognition for the knowledge and skills acquired and gives certified Advanced Certified Scrum Masters access to a global network of agile professionals and resources.

To earn the A-CSM, participants must already have a valid CSM certification. This ensures that they understand the basic concepts, principles and practices of the Scrum framework.

The A-CSM focuses on deepening the understanding of the role of the Scrum Master. Participants learn how to effectively apply the Scrum framework in different organizational contexts and how to support agile teams in complex projects. They expand their knowledge of agile practices and tools such as Kanban, Lean, retrospectives, and scaling techniques to increase the value and effectiveness of Scrum in their work environment.

A special focus is on the development of coaching skills. Scrum Masters should be able to support teams and individuals, resolve conflicts, remove obstacles and promote an agile mindset. Through the A-CSM certification, participants acquire advanced coaching skills to successfully accomplish these tasks.

In addition, participants gain deeper knowledge of team dynamics and learn how to improve team collaboration, communication, and self-organization. They will be empowered to identify dysfunctional patterns and find ways to increase team performance and engagement.

In conclusion, the Advanced Certified Scrum Master certification provides Scrum Masters with an opportunity to enhance their competencies in agile practices, coaching skills, and team dynamics. By earning this certification, they are better equipped to tackle complex challenges in agile product development and act as effective change agents in their organizations.

The A-CSM training has been made for experienced Scrum Masters who already hold the Certified Scrum Master certification by Scrum Alliance. An indispensable prerequisite for participation is therefore an active CSM license, which should not be older than two years.

The goal of the training is the coaching by the trainer based on the experiences of the participants. Here you get cross-industry insights into the development of self-determined teams and the possibilities as a Scrum Master.

The A-CSM is a professional and practical Scrum Master training for advanced Scrum Master and a highly interactive learning experience. As an Advanced Certified Scrum Master, you will learn the following in our trainings:

  • How to drive engagement, motivation and productivity in your agile team.
  • How to get the Product Owner, Project Manager and others on board.
  • Techniques to add momentum to Sprint Planning Sessions and Retrospectives.
  • How to handle difficult situations as a Scrum Master.
  • How you can increase the creative capabilities of a Scrum team.
  • Helpful strategies for change in the organization.

In most cases, the Agile Academy trainers offer two types of A-CSM training: There is the training scheduled for two or three days, as well as a modular solution that gives you coaching-on-the-job. The modules take place over a period of several weeks or even months, giving you the chance to apply what you have learned directly in your organization before rejoining your training group.

This allows you to get direct feedback from the training participants and you can analyze your experiences with the trainer and work out further steps in the group. In addition, you will receive important impulses for your work as an Advanced Scrum Master through the coaching of the Certified Scrum Trainer.
